    Mindelicious's Note:

    This looks a bit lengthy but its really not that complicated. This may be one of the greatest things I have ever cooked up. This recipe comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book Appetite for Reduction - 125+ fast & filling low-fat vegan recipes. She describes it perfectly: "Silky rice noodles, cool cucumbers, and refreshing mint are spiced up with chili garlic sauce". Serve with extra lime wedges & more chili garlic sauce.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Dressing

    • 1/3 cup warm water
    • 3 tablespoons agave nectar (or liquid sweetner of your choice)
    • 3 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 depending on how juicey your limes are)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    Salad

    Peanut-Mint Gremolata

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put water onto boil for the noodles.
    2. 2
      Prepare the dressing by mixing all the ingredients together and stir vigorously, set aside.
    3. 3
      Slice the tofu into 8 equal pieces widthwise then slice those rectangles corner to corner to form long triangles. Place in a single layer on a large plate and pour 6 tbsp of the dressing over top along with the soy sauce. Let marinate while you prepare everything else.
    4. 4
      Your water should be boiling so add the noodles and cook accordingly to the package directions.
    5. 5
      While the noodles are cooking prep all the veggies if that still needs to be done.
    6. 6
      The noodles should be ready so drain them and run under cold water for about a minute to cool them down. Add all the veggies, greens, and mint to the noodles, combining well (use your hands if need be) and set aside.
    7. 7
      Combine the gremolata ingredients in a small bowl, set aside.
    8. 8
      Heat a cast iron grill or skillet over medium high heat, spray with nonstick cooking spray and grill the tofu on each side for about 4 minutes or until it starts to brown. Add the excess marinade to the noodles.
    9. 9
      Assembly: Scoop the noodles into 6 bowls, add 2-3 pieces of tofu on the side of each bowl and sprinkle with the gremolata. Serve with extra lime wedges and extra chili garlic sauce.

      Five stars - even DH, who's very picky with tofu, loved this. I pan fried the tofu but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Will make it again! Thanks for sharing :)<br/>Made for Healthy Choices Tag Game.

      Great dish! Much like you would get in a restaurant. I tweeked this a little. We only have silken tofu at home, so skipped the grilling and just added the liquids as the sauce. I used broth instead of water since I had some in the frig, and did not add any sweetener. I also used cooked carrots and broccoli instead of the raw vegetables (except the cucumbers - which really make this dish!). The peanuts were perfect with it too. Wonderful flavor! Served 3 as an entree.
